Author Ashlie Weeks has been a writer all her life, but recently she has been inspired by the brave individuals stepping forward in today’s rocky and unpredictable climate to share her story.
Tears, Torture, and Tomorrow presents a narrative in verse about surviving and navigating women’s issues. It explores the complexities of sexual harassment, sexual assault, gender discrimination, abuse, and perseverance. This poetry collection seeks to inspire and remind women they are not alone in these difficult and incredibly painful times. Weeks wrote these poems over the course of many years, and now, with the emergence of such strong voices around victimization and objectification of women, their time has come. This collection reaches out to victims and perpetrators alike, with the end goal informing, assisting, and helping anyone who has been a victim of such behavior.
In this collection of poetry, one woman offers a raw and inspirational account of her experiences tackling sexual harassment and assault, abuse, and gender issues.
